Moore given release by Roar after coach dispute

The Brisbane Roar have released captain and Socceroos defender Craig Moore following a falling out with the A-League club's new coach Ange Postecoglou.
The club said Thursday that twice in the past two months Moore delivered an ultimatum that either they fire Postecoglou or he would walk away.
The 34-year-old Moore is reported to be considering an offer from Scottish Premier League club St. Johnstone. Moore played for more than a decade with Scottish club Rangers.
Moore wants to return overseas to lift his fitness and attempt to stay eligible for selection for Australia's World Cup squad after coach Pim Verbeek said he wanted his players playing regularly in the lead up to the tournament in June.
